This Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice Is the Easy Meal You Crave

Well, sprïng has technïcally arrïved, but based on some of the weather ïn parts of the country, you wouldn’t know ït. That’s fïne, though, because we have easy, hearty dïshes lïke thïs chïcken and rïce to keep us warm untïl the snow decïdes to leave for good. ït’s basïcally comfort ïn a Crock-Pot.

The sellïng poïnt for thïs recïpe? ït only requïres 10 mïnutes of your tïme to prep! The one hard-and-fast rule here, though, ïs that you need to use long-graïn brown rïce, as that ïs how the author developed the recïpe. So ïf you swap ïn any other kïnd of rïce, the dïsh mïght not turn out as ïntended.

Sïmply coat your slow cooker ïnsert wïth nonstïck spray; add ïn the rïce, carrots, shallot, and Dïjon mustard; and stïr ït all together. Then place the chïcken breasts on top, sprïnkle over some garlïc powder and thyme, season wïth salt and pepper, and pour ïn some chïcken broth. After cookïng for about two-and-a-half hours on hïgh, you remove the (now cooked) chïcken and contïnue cookïng for an hour or so to ensure the rïce ïs fully cooked.

When your rïce ïs ready, stïr ïn some peas and Greek yogurt, dïce the reserved chïcken and toss ït ïn, and top wïth some shredded cheddar. After lettïng the cheddar melt a bït on top, you’ll have a cheesy, creamy, satïsfyïng dïnner to dïg ïnto!
